Congratulations to our popular colleague Steve James, who’s been declared top on-air personality in the main Asia-wide broadcasting awards, the ABU Prizes. Steve has been hailed as number one for his weekday afternoon show by the Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Union – which has a network of members that can reach 3 billion people across the region! It’s great recognition for Steve, who’s been with Radio 3 for the past 17 years. As well as hosting his show, The Steve James Afternoon Drive – to give it its full title – with its comic social observations, parody songs and social media engagement, he’s also the producer of Vintage Chart Toppers, and works his magic on lots of the Radio 3 trails and theme tunes that you hear every day. In all, RTHK won four top prizes in the seven radio categories – an unprecedented success – the others coming in the documentary, news reporting and community service announcement sections.
While the government in China is celebrating the 40th anniversary of the reform and opening up of the Mainland, we discuss on Tuesday's Backchat what was, what is and what will be Hong Kong’s role in the whole progress of the economic reform. What part did the city play as China opened to the West and to market reforms? Is there still a role for a special Hong Kong in the national economy as a trading centre, entrepot or bridge to the rest of the world?
After 9:20, Hong Kong land occupied by mainland border guards in Sha Tau Kok for farming.

Two key Asian leaders’ summits kick off this week, attended by US Vice President Mike Pence. The meetings are the Association of Southeast Asian Nations’ events in Singapore and the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in Papua New Guinea. Writing in the Washington Post ahead of the meeting, Pence said, “we seek an Indo-Pacific — from the United States to India, from Japan to Australia, and everywhere in between — where sovereignty is respected, where commerce flows unhindered and where independent nations are masters of their own destinies.” The article was taken as indicating Washington’s goal was to contain China’s economic and military expansion, particularly in the South China Sea, concerns shared by Japan.
Joining Tuesday’s Money Talk are Connie Bolland, founder and chief economist of Economic Research analysis and Anthony Chan, Chief Asia Investment Strategist from Union Bancaire Privée. Providing the view from Japan is Marcel Thieliant, Senior Japan Economist at Capital Economics.
